Black ballpoint ink on newspaper
(La Dépêche du Midi)
Each 47 × 32 cm
A long horizontal line stretches along a wall. It comprises 30 drawings done in black ballpoint ink on the front pages of the August 1–30, 2019 editions of a local newspaper, La Dépêche du Midi. The artist has depicted the phases of the moon corresponding to the publication dates: from waxing to full to waning to new. Does the lunar cycle influence the evolution of the world? As the pages are inked over, the news gradually disappears, leaving only bits of text visible. A natural phenomenon capable of measuring time and affecting the tides, symbolizing temporal repetition and the cyclical nature of life, the moon merges with the interrupted flow of daily events.
